#1 Senator Inhofe calls President's Okla visit 'disingenuous'03-23-2012, 12:26 AMSenator Jim Inhofe criticized President Obama's visit to Oklahoma on Thursday.
In the statement, Inhofe welcomed President Obama to the state but called the visit 'disingenuous.'
“I welcome President Obama to my home state, but his visit is disingenuous on a number of levels,” said Inhofe. “His trip, focused on jobs and energy, began and ended in Oklahoma at Tinker Air Force Base. Just weeks ago, his own defense budget cuts that are gutting our military resulted in cutting over 1,000 jobs at Tinker and in Oklahoma City.
He and his administration have waged a war on fossil fuels, so to travel to Cushing and claim otherwise is just more disingenuous rhetoric in a campaign year. He knows that gas prices are a problem for his re-election. No one in Oklahoma is buying his spin.
President Obama is the one who told us that fossil fuels will bring the world to an end; that under his plan of a cap-and-trade system energy prices would ‘necessarily skyrocket’; and that companies like Solyndra were leading the way to a ‘brighter and more prosperous future.’ His budgets have sought to penalize fossil fuel companies to pay for massive deficits he has raised.
He blocked the Keystone Pipeline, prevented energy exploration on federal lands, and attempted to regulate fossil fuels to death. He has the most aggressive anti-fossil fuel agenda in history. During his trip today, he pretended to support the virtues of oil and gas, but we all know what he is really doing. The only job this trip was meant to save is his own."
Inhofe called one of our newsman's questions stupid and he was very taken aback, he was pissed all the way through the rest of the news broadcast.The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

I guess the senator likes government spending after all.

Meanwhile, Obama is choking the private sector with policies that drive up the cost of fuel through restrictions on extraction, while wasting billions on phony green technologies that go bust as soon as they've been infused with taxpayer dollars.

Obama claims to be concerned about jobs, but cuts defense spending, which is one of the few federal programs that actually generates private sector activity. He claims to be pro-growth, but pursues policies that inhibit it in the name of green superstitions. He is a liar, whether we say it or not, so the Senator might as well say it.

If you are going to demand austerity, you have to have the courage to mean austerity for those items in the budget you favor. If not, you can be dismissed as just another hypocrite willing to gore the ox as long as it isn't yours.

Austerity does not have to meet your narrow definition either. Austerity can be practiced by our bloated government by cutting spending across the board, especially on those items that are NOT Constitutional. The military could stand cuts but why do you libertards always gut the one of few actual Constitutional expenditures and never cut your favored yet Unconstitutional and wasteful "programs?"
If you cut those Unconstitutional share the wealth programs, no further action would be necessary.
Remember these words?
"If you are going to demand austerity, you have to have the courage to mean austerity for those items in the budget you favor."

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:
